In accordance with the previously announced vessel upgrade program, a firm order for a new 1600t crane for Brave Tern is now placed with Huisman. The installation on the vessel is expected to be completed in 2024. Separately, ongoing installation and upgrade work on Bold Tern at Keppel Fels is progressing according to plan and budget. The upgrade program will secure continued strong competitiveness of FOWIC’s three existing vessels also for the next generations of turbines coming to the market.
